Letters: Gloucester City's Memorial Day Services Outstanding

Dear Bill,

Just a note about today's services at the War Memorial 6 monuments.  I was very happy to see so many people there, of course more would have been great.  The speakers were great, the Gloucester City Choir sang beautifully. The Brownie Troop (can't remember #) read a little poem about poppies, they are all so little, but spoke up loud and proud. All organizations showed their pride for our fallen soldiers.   

Previous mayors along with the present Mayor and some council members were present. Along with other honored guests. 

Unfortunately the Gloucester City High School Band could not be there, the director is very ill and couldn't participate.  Two of the members, Gabby Spagnoplia and Stephanie Lado, represented Gloucester High, and played taps.  They did an excellent job.

All in all the services went well and I thank everyone who attended.  Hope to see them all again next year with some additions.

God bless the USA!
